The Wikipedia article on ABQ RIDE has pictures of most of the different bus series:

However, here is a more detailed explanation:
- The 300 series buses were made by Neoplan in 1996. They are mostly found on most of the busier routes, such as the 66 and the 140/141. They are 40-foot high floor buses, and are powered by compressed natural gas.
- The 400 series (401-435 to be exact) buses were built by Thomas in 2001. Like the 300 series buses, they are also powered by compressed natural gas. These buses are often used on lower-ridership routes such as the 50 or 16/18. These buses are low-floors, and are 32 feet long.
- 436 is an oddball of the 400 series fleet. It is diesel-powered rather than CNG powered, and is 36 feet long. This is also the only bus in the fleet to feature a rear window. I haven't seen it lately, so I don't know which route is it operating.
- The 700 series buses are ABQ RIDE's newest buses. They were built by New Flyer in 2007/2008, and are diesel-electric hybrids. These buses have frameless windows on the outside. They are 40-foot low floor buses, and are painted in ABQ RIDE's new maroon and white livery. You can find these buses on almost any route, with a few exceptions (such as the 50 and 36).
-The 6400 series buses are the first Rapid Ride buses, and were built by New Flyer in 2004. They are low floor diesel-electric hybrids.
-The 6600 series buses are the second batch of Rapid Ride buses. They differ from the 6400 series a little, the most notable difference is the windows.

I hope this has been some help.
